One of the views while having coffee

This is some ones back yard or rather the back of some flats that I could see while having coffee the other morning.
A fence a rose, some irises and a background of trees and buildings.
I am being very slap dash at the moment as nothing is grabbing me.
I think I am too worried about Christmas coming and all it means, presents, getting it all organised and going away.
Very hot in Adelaide today which is where I was in the morning seeing my mother. We came home for a late lunch and then I didnt seem to do much.
A lovely line quoted by one of our artists Ian Hannaford which was reported to have been said by Picasso, paintings are never finished you abandon it.

Don't worry about Christmas. Keep it simple, just fun for the kids. No big deal with the food because it's summer anyway. I have never baked a Christmas cake, a plum pudding maybe three times. Anyway, you have an abundance of lovely hand-made gifts which are much nicer than anything bought. However I know that Christmas can get out of hand and relatives end up very jaded.

I enjoy these "slap dash" paintings. You always encourage me to keep painting and trying.
